    A marvel of a documentary, a clear-eyed and affectionate film that tells a remarkable story with both visual and personal sensitivity. More impressive still, it's largely the work of one man.

    Circo offers a touching chronicle of a dying culture harnessed to ambitions that remain very much alive.

    An artfully observant and unexpectedly moving documentary.

    Though Circo is pretty bleak, Schock doesn't skimp on the exotic wonder of a life on the road, surrounded by color and danger.
